5% of humanity who vote in republican primary elections. they don't care what happens in november. they care what happens in june, july august, when they're having their primaries. it is only a tiny fraction of the public who goes to congress from all of those many republican districts. that's their audience. the nra still has veto power over most republican members of congress. they'll kowtow to the nra. >> john: if they go ahead and block oar filibuster an assault weapons ban or regulations on magazine size, when the next massacre happens does the house g.o.p. then own it? >> it just doesn't matter to them. we live in a country where almost 25 million people can't find full-time work and the president and the democratic party have been trying desperately to do something about this for the past four years and for the past two years, the republicans have blocked every effort. the president's jobs program never came to a vote in the house of representatives. it is farcical. they don't want to help people. they don't care. the only way to solve this problem is simply to put them out

: actually, think about the demographic politics from the last election. what do the broad array of critics, what do they have in common besides the obvious. [ whistling ] they are all white they're all male. thank goodness not all white males think the way they do. the fist shakers not just rush limbaugh but those in congress, too, are made up mostly of that demographic group and those demographics mirror the nra itself. the nra's board is 80% male and 85% white. the overwhelm majority of congress men's are republicans on theare the as. and on the other end of the spectrum, the the majority of fs went to democrats. it seems like the nra is not only not representative of the full american demographic but data suggests that it is out of step with the rest of the country as well. on this issue of gun safety. new polls show that the majority of americans support the president's gun safety proposals. new poll out today 85% support closing the gun show loophole. 55% support a ban on semi semi automatic weapons. when you look at just women it's more dramatic. 50% of men support a ban on a
